50 Questions of Randomness

So I realized that I haven't posted in a few days, mostly because my life has been crazy with work, performances, and moving.  I don't really have anything profound to say or anything else really exciting going on in my life right now, so I thought it would be fun just to post some random questions.  You gotta have some fun in life!

1.  Where were you three hours ago?  I was dying in my apartment because it was so stuffy in there while sorting through shoes.  It was rather boring.

2.  What are you looking forward to in the next week?  I'd have to say Encore's two final performances of The Westing Game because they are going to be awesome and also being completely out of my apartment and not having to wonder if I'm going to have enough money to buy food.

3.  Is there anything pink within ten feet of you?  Well the rugs in my room have some pink in them, so yes.

4.  When's the last time you went to the mall?  Sometime in the spring maybe?  I honestly don't go to the mall.  I don't enjoy shopping and I don't like being around that many people.

5.  Are you wearing socks right now?  No.  I go barefoot, wear flip flops, or wear ballet flats.  I am not a socks kind of girl.

The Westing Game - A Journey Through My Eyes

A couple of months ago I saw that a theatre group I've acted with in the past was having auditions for a play called The Westing Game.  The name sounded very familiar so I looked it up and found that the play was based off a book of the same name, a book that I had read when I was in 5th grade.  I'll take just about any opportunity to act, so I figured that I'd go ahead and audition.  I also figured that it would probably be a good idea for me to actually re-read the book since I didn't remember much of it other than bits and pieces.  My first thought, before I started reading it, was that it was going to be a bit juvenile.  I mean, I'd read this book when I was a kid, sure there are those books that are timeless and that you love all through your life from childhood to adulthood, but I couldn't really imagine this being one of them.  I was completely wrong.  It turned out to be one of the most brilliant books I had read in a good while and I loved it.  With my first reading I immediately knew what character I wanted to play, a woman who just didn't fit in with the other characters.  They laughed at her behind her back, ignored, and treated her, quite honestly, like crap, until of course they needed her and then they were all willing to kiss up to her.  In that book, she was the person who I could identify with the most, with the way she felt and to an extent to the way she was treated.  I think I read the book through at least five times before my audition, just so I could get a good feel of the character and nail the cold reading of the script.

I'm Baaaaaack!!!!!

So obviously I haven't blogged since May, so almost 6 months now, but I do have a very good excuse.  In case you didn't know, internet can be quite expensive, like $40+ a month expensive for the cheapest plan.  If you didn't know before, now you do.  And so moving in a new apartment and all, having to pay for rent, electric, water, food, etc., well, let's just say that internet was not exactly a top priority.  Fast forward to the present and I am moving back in with my parents temporarily, well, probably until next summer, mostly due to the fact that my apartment was ridiculously expensive and for all that it looked nice, I've had a lot of problems with it and it just wasn't worth it anymore.  Did I mention how expensive it was?  And since it was so expensive, I was basically saving up pennies so I can eventually move to L.A.  So I'm going to be living with my parents for a while until one of my friends finishes high school and then we'll probably rent an apartment together or a house or something.  Yeah, you can tell we've really thought this through.  I think I'll leave it at that for now, but you can expect me to start blogging again.  I've honestly really missed it and I hated having those days when I had a moment of, Oooh, I really want to blog about this, and then realizing that, Darn, I don't have internet.  Really complicates things, I can tell you.  Until next time, au revoir!  Oh, did you miss me? ;)
